The written answer to tho applica

men concerned will have it in their
hands-elther this fternoon;or tomor

or the Bishop Estate make is .that the

BARGB RACB CONTROVERSY.
Although the judgts In the Itegattn
Duy-Taccs had fully Intended having
the Myrtle and Hcalani crews row over
again the first race of tho day, thorn
was a change In this decision after tho
publication, pr tho Bulletin, on that
day. Both'crcws havo'lianded In their
protests and now the Judges have glv
tn their answer. Thu crews must row
the race over again on Saturday or else
It will go ror nothing and will be en
tired on the books of tho secretary of
the Kegatta Day events as "no race."
Tho crews have until Wednesday to
die their answers with the Judges.
It seems to be the opinion or those
most Interested that there will be no
hesitancy on the part of the boat club
about rowing the race over again on
Saturday. It is not desired by either
rlub that thu race shall go tor notii
lug. The Healanls think they can beat
the Myrtles and vice versa.
